Juneau Sport Fishing Report

Posted: Wednesday, May 20, 2009

According to the third week of our creel survey, king salmon are being harvested in the traditional fishing spots. Last week, the hot spots were the Marmion-South Douglas area, followed by the Taku Inlet-Pt. Bishop area and west Pt. Retreat-Cordwood area. Last week, it took the average Juneau area marine boat angler 132 rod hours to harvest a king, a little longer than the prior week's 120-rod hours. Last year it took 51 rod-hours and the five-year average was 48-rod hours per fish. King salmon fishing will improve in the coming weeks, and should peak around Memorial Day. Remember, anglers must have in possession a 2009 fishing license and a king salmon stamp.
